Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I used chmod before, but it is rather slow to change files attributes. But anyway, ok it works. What does chown do? It sets the owner of the file, but what does that mean, why is it different if it says user instead fo root?
Ok that brings me to the second question.
My MySQL database is not behaving as it should. I can't connect to it from a remote computer. It says this "my IP" is not allowed to connect to "my servers IP". And on my computer I have to connect to MySQL only with the command mysql, because otherwise it says can not connect (user = bla bla)(password = YES). Connecting wtihout username and password works great, but that is not what I want to do.
i never worked it out... when i applied a pass to the database it wouldnt allow me in! got the same error as your getting. personally it doesnt make any differance to me but it would be nice to have the option. in the end i was forced to scrap the install and start again to fix it... if you find out please email me and let me know
to restrict people just change the permissions so that only admins can see the whole system and that only a user can see his home directory. have it make a group for each user and give only the user and admin read/write access.
